Missing Town Mountain View

Original post made by Jennifer Fogliani, Whisman Station, on Jul 31, 2011

If you ask my two children, ages 2 and 3, where they live, their response is always, "Town Mountain View." I am not sure where the word town came from - probably from hearing the driver on the Light Rail say, "next stop Downtown Mountain View". Wherever it came from, I know I will be sad when their cute response changes to plain, old Mountain View.

(No doubt a newocmer supporter of high speed rail ripping through our town to get to LA.)

You need to insert "we" in the fourth paragraph.
